Happy Birthday, George!

We celebrated George's birthday in grand style at the Obelisk (2029 P Street NW). This small Italian restaurant offers five courses at a fixed (rather high!) price. The menu was varied and ample. We had the only window table, the best location in the house.

Dal was the host and George was the festeggiato

Christine and Andrea, the honored guests

Have you ever seen such long - and tasty - breadsticks?

Scrumptious artichoke fritter and delicious burrata with olive oil and pepper

Chocolate pudding, spiced pear, and an almond cookie for dessert

Another dessert: baba al rhum with a spiced peach sauce and cream
